100 Words Every Middle Schooler Should Know
Some time ago, I posted “The 100 Words Every High School Graduate Should Know” by American Heritage Dictionary. It received lots of traffic. Then I created an online quiz to test yourself. That was great too — hundreds of quiz takers so far.
But American Heritage has also published their “100 Words Every Middle School Graduate Should Know” and I found it just as interesting. So, I’ve published the list also with each word hyper-linked to its definition on the American Heritage site. I’ve got another quiz too. You can test your knowledge of these words by clicking the link below the list.
Please understand that these lists are purely subjective and somewhat arbitrary. I have no idea how they went about nominating and including the words they did. Some, particularly on the high school list, seem unnecessarily obscure and rare. Don’t feel bad if you don’t know some or even many of them. It doesn’t really mean anything. It’s just a fun way to see what we know.
Take the quiz and see how well you do!
